Elmwood Inn Fine Teas owner Bruce Richardson visited the Lover's Leap Tea Estate in Sri Lanka and immediately fell in love with the tea garden. This is a classic orange pekoe grade Ceylon black tea that is great at any time of day. Very smooth.
You may already know that the tea grade orange pekoe has nothing to do with citrus fruit. If not, order a copy of the reference book used by more tea purveyors internationally, The New Tea Companion
by Bruce Richardson and Jane Pettigrew.

This is not the typical lover's leap op.
Biscuity with a abrisk lemon aftertaste
A true OP
It laks the great aroma of some nuwara eliya teas.
Four stars for the tea. And effort but a truer first grade tea itgis is not.
